Wireless E9-1-1 Deployment Assistance

USDOT is sponsoring a WE9-1-1 Initiative to accelerate the availability of wireless emergency location service across the United States, and thereby enhance transportation safety and security. One goal of the WE9-1-1 Initiative is to work with public safety associations and leaders to provide technical assistance, guidance, and training to accelerate state and local readiness for wireless E9-1-1. The objectives of this project are to support the WE9-1-1 Initiative by developing the necessary tools, technical guidance, and training and outreach materials to facilitate implementation of the wireless E9-1-1 services throughout the 50 states. A related objective is to foster coordination among the many players in this field to ensure efficient approaches to the implementation process.
